news from alumni
Home: Shenandoah TX Married to Laurie Bear
Career: ExxonMobil
Comments: “Glenn Bear (MS ‘92, PhD ‘97) and Lorie Bear
(PhD ‘97) are living in Houston and both are working for
ExxonMobil. Both continue to pursue their passions in
geophysics. They met, were married, and had their first
son while at IU. Both of their kids have now started col-
lege, but neither could be convinced to study geoscienc-
es, nor to attend IU. “

Career: Principal Hydrogeologist, Ramboll
Comments: “Lots of changes since my last update - I am
working as a Principal Hydrogeologist with the global firm
Ramboll (Headquartered in Copenhagen but my office
still in the SF Bay area) on lots of water resources, envi-
ronmental restoration, climate change and litigation work.

And on the family side, older daughter Shayna is just about
to graduate with her BA from UCLA (my undergrad alma
mater), and younger daughter Sara is a new undergrad
at IU(!) (with the vocal program at the Jacobs School of
Music!). It has been fun getting back to campus with Sara
and checking out all the old digs - and running into friends
from ways back like Todd Thompson, the State Geologist
with the IGS! Both my wife Susan and I are also now part
of the IU Parents Advisory Board - so that is another very
cool connection with IU and B-town.“

Mary Pikul Anderson G429 (1969)
Home: Madison WI
Career: Professor Emeritus of Hydrology at Department
of Geoscience, University of Wisconsin at Madison
Comments: “Indiana’s field camp was one of the most
memorable times of my life - it was my first big adventure
- my first time to see the Western USA and its incredible
geology, my first encounter with so many people from
such diverse backgrounds. It was important for me to
have this field experience especially since my career has
58 | hgr
focused on computer modeling with limited field adven-
tures. After IU field camp, I graduated from the Universi-
ty at Buffalo, got a PhD in Hydrology from Stanford Univ,
spent two years in Long Island, and in 2009 retired from a
34 year career as a professor of hydrogeology at the Univ
of Wisconsin-Madison. I am so glad the IU field camp tra-
dition continues.“

Roy H. Drew G429 (1969)
Home: Maple City MI
Career: Retired from the Bureau of Land Management
Comments: “Thank you very much for ‘tracking me down’
and contacting me! It was a pleasure to hear from you and
reflect on my time at the Field Station. G429 was a much
needed experience and education for me, and I benefit-
ed significantly from it. I went on to have a very rewarding
and interesting career with the Bureau of Land Manage-
ment as a Geologist/Mineral Examiner in Colorado. I was
able to work in the field, over much of the West, but never
in Montana. I took my wife to the Field Station sometime
during the late 80’s to show her around the campus, but
unfortunately it was not during course time. It was nice to
return! We did have a beer in Whitehall. Take care of your-
selves, and G429. Thanks again! “
